Things I've Done

The things I've done are in bold.

1. Started your own blog umm, yeah, of course
2. Slept under the stars ahh good times -- slept outside almost every day during the summers as a kid -- but mostly when we slept outside, it was on the porch, so it wasn't technically under the stars!
3. Played in a band -- always wished to, but missing the all-important talent
4. Visited Hawaii -- ahhh I wish -- someday!
5. Watched a meteor shower funny story -- When we were dating, Steve took me to a trail head at the top of North Ogden canyon, and we watched the meteor shower in the back of his dad's truck -- when a van pulled in by us -- a few minutes later and we started hearing some very...uh...amorous...sounds coming from the van -- very loudly! We got so uncomfortable that we left before the meteor shower was over!
6. Given more than you can afford to charity
7. Been to Disneyland -- so fun! I can't wait til Grayson is old enough to go!

22. Hitch hiked -- ohh no -- I would be too freaked! I'd walk before I hitched!
23. Taken a sick day when you’re not ill -- actually, I called in sick to work so I could go on a date with Steve that he was all excited for -- and it ended up being the night he proposed! So I'd have to say it was worth it :)

How much! Lincoln has the same carseat (different color) and I love it! I like it way more than our Britax. Those things are overrated.

Katie said...
